Job Description

We are building new offerings for Alexa to enable the dream of the smart, connected home. This is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor and lead an Alexa Smart Home engineering team, designing and building innovative voice-driven experiences for interacting with smart home appliances and electronics. You'll get to come up with new experiences, launch, and quickly iterate on feedback through continuous customer delivery.

Your team will be responsible for the invention of disruptive technologies designed to simplify consumer customers' lives. The problem space spans IoT-scale (billions of devices) cloud services and low-latency, secure, and reliable, home networks. Your team’s work will span Alexa skills, voice user interfaces, AWS technology, and a rapidly-growing ecosystem of IoT devices.

We have a team full of exceptional engineers, great work-life balance, and a culture of supporting each other to succeed as a team. You will also have the satisfaction of working on a product your friends and family can relate to, and want to use every day. Like the world of smart phones less than 10 years ago, this is a rare opportunity to have a giant impact on the way people live.

If this sounds like fun, let's talk!
